Tom Bergeron Reveals Miss America Secret

Hollywood personality and WHAV alum Tom Bergeron this week revealed the funny story behind why he hosted the annual Miss America pageant only once.

Appearing in a HuffPost Live video interview, Bergeron said he made the mistake of telling a talk show about the inappropriate behavior of a southern pageant contestant in 2003.

“One of the Southern state contestants and I said, ‘That’s a really nice shoulder massage.’ She said, and I quote, ‘And if I win, a full body massage,’” Bergeron said.

Bergeron hosts “Dancing With The Stars” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” He is also the author of “I’m Hosting as Fast as I Can: Zen and the Art of Staying Sane in Hollywood.”
